MuhMur Radio Broadcast 18 January 2018.


The first broadcast of 2018, and back to the two hour Thursday night (fortnightly) routine. A few ideas / projects lined up for the first few months ... but first a chance to play some sounds that arrived at MuhMur HQ over the festive holidays. (With a couple of old favourites).
With advice from Alex of Tordon Ljud distro I had a listen to MH_370. TL are distributing the cassette so there's a sound sample on their website .. and after a few minutes I knew I had to grab a copy. MH_370 is the only title on the cassette. Artist and title = MH_370. It seriously didn't connect until I played the tape in full and realised it was sounds built around the disappearance of flight MH_370 in 2014. The sound samples from black box recordings and news reports gave 'the game' away! The cassette is on Stockholm based label Hlioõ, I noticed they also released a cassette called "Der Rhein". A 40 minute odyssey recorded at various points along the river Rhine. These tapes are ultra limited. 25 / 30 copies. Still available via Tordon Ljud or Hlioõ at https://soundcloud.com/hliod

                                                                          MH_370.

The Susan Matthews track comes from a new double CDR release of Susan's compilation work from 2001 to 2016. Last month Greek label Noise-Below released a CDR by German droners Troum. "Hóro-Skopeíon" is dedicated to Gregoria and Pafsanias and is a ritual recording from June 2017 to celebrate the first birthday of their son.

                                                           "Hóro-Skopeíon" insert.

A release that past me by last year was Aqua Dentata's "One Day, You Will Be A Painter" on Echo Tango. It slipped out last May, and at the end of 2017 started appearing on folks' 'Top Ten' lists. Like all Aqua Dentata releases the tracks have no titles, and here I played the whole of side one. Four short pieces with Aqua Dentata discovering and exploring a harsh, dark and nightmarish soundscape. Hopefully 2018 will see the first vinyl release from Aqua Dentata.
Schuster is Tim Bayes, founder member of Ideas Beyond Filth and former participant in the Dieter Müh project. Over the past few weeks I have been rediscovering the Schuster sound from his first cassette on Silencer in 1986 through to his last release on his own Adeptsound label in 2012. (Expect more Schuster on the playlist throughout the coming programmes). Schuster releases are available via Discogs: https://www.discogs.com/artist/62493-Schuster

MuhMur Radio Festive Four Hour Feast Of Fun : 06 January 2018.

On the last day of Christmas SoundArt Radio broke into its' "Jingle Hell' automated playlist to let MuhMur Radio bring the traditional four (or sometimes five) festive broadcast. It's great fun to do and hopefully an opportunity for folk who don't usually listen to the evening programme to get a flavour of what happens. For the first time in four years I slipped in the 'On This Day' feature and played a track from The Mekons eponymous second album that came out on January 6 1980.

Quite often I don't get the chance to play new releases on the regular Thursday night programme due to the 'On This Day' feature or playing exclusive material etc ... and this programme gives me an opportunity to do that and play the slightly longer piece.
This broadcast gave me the chance to play the complete album "My Body, Your Temple" by Greek project Conjecture. A C30 tape released in November by Bulgarian label Amek with co-operation from the Berlin based label Raumklang Music. These sounds have made an impression. The cassette is available from : https://conjecture-project.bandcamp.com
The broadcast begins with new material from The Dead Mauriacs. "Chance Test" is an EP on their own NPH label. I have a feeling it was available only at the recent Ausklang Festival that took place in Hamburg over Christmas. I could be wrong. The CDR is dedicated to MuhMur Radio.
The J. Adolphe piece is from a forthcoming tape. I think it is to be released by Sinneslöschen sometime this month ... I am uncertain. J. Adolphe is the solo project of GerãuschManufaktur label boss Jan Warnke.
So, the majority of the tracks are from bands / projects / artists whose sounds I never got to play (or at least tracks from) with some old tunes to compliment the vibe. I had no idea that I had never played the two Dieter Müh tracks before.

Whilst the programme was being broadcast members of SoundArt Radio were preparing for a New Year ritual, welcoming in 2018 with song & dance that was being performed in the gardens of the Darlington Hall Estate and the Great Hall in the Estate. (You know, the place where 23 Skidoo recorded 'The Culling Is Coming'). A pagan affair with some great costumes. It was great fun running between studio and turntables with kids and adults alike practicing the dance, songs and trumpet blowing!

                                                      The Owl guarding the Great Hall.

                                                                   The Green Man.

The radio programme is split in two halves for easy aural digestion.
Part One:

35: Storm Bugs : "Up The Pylon And Down The Lane" (Snatch Tapes) 2017.


And so to the corrections! I stated The Mekons LP was released in 1981 - wrong! also that the Conjecture cassette was a collaboration between Mahorka & Amek - wrong. Also that the next MuhMur Radio would be on January 16 at 8pm. - wrong ... it's January 18 at 20:00 (GMT).

MuhMur Radio (The Sessions).

MuhMur Radio started broadcasting on the FM station SoundArt Radio in September 2012. At the beginning I asked friends and folk whose sound I admired to provide some exclusive material for broadcast whether it be 'work in progress', unused material, pre-release recordings, live recordings or something exclusive for MuhMur Radio ... it will be broadcast and a two hour programme would be built around their submission. Needless to say, it has been a great pleasure to air such unique sounds and a great honour. On a couple of occasions sounds provided for MuhMur Radio have been released.

Now, after fifty our so "sessions" (can't think of a better word) I have decided to document the recordings. It will take a while and I have decided to do it alphabetically instead of chronologically.

All recordings can be found here : https://www.mixcloud.com/muhsteve/
